Fujifilm X-Pro1 - video review

Spotted this video today on my Street Photography FB group.

While this review has its merits - as Artur Gorniak put it, it's "one of the first reviews posted on the net" - and he exclaimed "Lovely High- ISO performance!"
Myself, I hardly could watch 4 (out of 11) minutes of this review - it just doesnt deliver, I just couldnt stand the presenter's behaviour (more suitable to presenting something el cheapo gadget than another "poor man's Leica"), couldnt stand that review with a distinctive touch of moronic Asian B-movies attitude, couldnt stand very loud goddamned heavy metal alike music background, couldnt stand that the presenter just couldnt sit a moment and keeps walking/moving etc.

Yup, I'm not that politically correct, am I?

Still, I'm striving to hear about real person's experience with Fujifilm X-Pro1, cause I was really excited with what I read at DPreview a while ago.
An interesting camera - sensor is a little larger than one of Oly Pens and Panasonic GF / GX. Comes with prime lenses. Quite loaded.

Quoting DPreview:
...the most interesting change is ... the image sensor. The X-Pro 1 uses a proprietary, Fujifilm-designed 16MP APS-C 'X-Trans CMOS' ...The result, claims Fujifilm, ... that in terms of detail resolution the X-Pro 1 should punch above its weight based on pixel count alone - indeed Fujifilm is claiming it will out-resolve the full frame 21MP Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

How's that?
